Markham Math and Science, English and French Tutors
What is a fact everywhere including Markham is that each child is different and may often learn each subject at a unique pace. Sometimes, children need or want extra help to keep up with their classmates. Sometimes, they just need enrichment in some areas. Though each child is an individual, here are a few scenarios we encounter:
Smart students who enjoy Math are often disappointed with their marks. The way Math is evaluated is different from the way their parents were evaluated. More emphasis is put on communication and the understanding of word problems. All students need to be guided on how to obtain their best marks. Sometimes, paying attention to simple detail can go a long way in reflecting their true ability on a test. This is where only an Ontario Certified Teacher can be of assistance.
Once a student has done poorly on a few Math tests, their confidence level can drop. They may feel inadequate and therefore are not open to learn new concepts.
Grade 11 Functions, often comes as a big surprise to even strong Math students. It is totally different from anything they have ever studied. A bit of guidance can go a long way to help them comprehend.
English and French Language Arts
In the early grades, smart children will often imitate others and memorize the text while reading. Both teachers and parents are fooled by such behavior. Usually by grade 3, it is apparent to all, that these children are in fact, non-readers. The faster remedial work can begin, the quicker the gap between this child and his/her classmates’ reading level can be closed up. This is truly an emergency as reading is instrumental to learning all subjects.
Writing is another area of concern as students are marked on their communication skills in all courses. Many students need to review the writing process as they enter High School. They need to know how to properly write an essay, a science report, a research project.
These scenarios are probably not your story, please contact us as we would like to hear about the challenges your child is facing. Each story is so different; this is why we believe in individual tutoring in the privacy of your home, where the student feels most comfortable. Having an Ontario certified Teacher tutor your child will take away a lot of stress for both parent and child.
